The government will instruct the Jerusalem Police Department to prevent Jews from entering the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site, during the final 10 days of the Muslim month of Ramadan, Channel 12 is reporting.

Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu (Otzma Yehudit), a member of National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir's party, responded to the reported decision: "Any sighn of weekns that we showed in the past three decades did not work. Anytime we showed weekness infront of the people who hurt us, in the end, we were hurt, us and our children.

Otzma Yehudit and the Likud have differnt mindsets and we came to change Israel's mindset. That doesn't happen in a day and we are fighting for it. This government is better that the previous government, we are moveing things along through mutual respect. We stopped the grants for terrorists, we rescinded citizenship from terrorists, and we are creating a National Guard, and it isn't pleasent and there are those who yell," stated Eliyahu.

Prof. Yaakov Nagel, who served as the acting National Security Board Chief, called on Israel to take action against Jordan in response to its encoragement of riots on the Temple Mount. "The relationship between Israel and Jordan is important and it is important for us to stay in contact with them. Without Israel and the US, the king and his rule would collapse," Nagel stated.

"And what do they do in return? They support terrorists who hole themselves up on the Temple Mount, today it ended ok. who knows what will happen tommorow or next week. The Jordanians also need to be punished for their recent behaviour, we do have to stay in contact with them since it's important for the state of Israel, but there's so much that we can take."
